About Me

I am a PhD student in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. Since August 2012 I have been working with Dr. Patrick Schaumont in the Secure Embedded Systems Lab (SES). SES is part of the Center for Embedded Systems for Critical Applications (CESCA) at Virginia Tech.

My research interests include:

  • Secure Embedded System Design
  • Side Channel/Fault Attacks
  • Hardware Software Co-design
